It’s one of the worst processed foods you can put in your body… But drinking soda goes beyond raising metabolic risk factors. It could shorten your lifespan.

Halloween is a little over a week away… Candy bars, chocolates, and other sweets are right in your face in most grocers. But the problems with eating sugar go way beyond your waistline…

A new study shows that drinking sugary sodas may age your cells as much as smoking.

Researchers at the University of California San Francisco found that people who drank at least 20 ounces of soda a day were most at risk. They increased their cellular aging by an average of 4.6 years. But just not by way of oxidative stress or inflammation…

The problem is when they get too short to replicate, it causes cell death. This could mean looking older than you are… Even worse, it may cut your life short.

Over 30 million Americans have diabetes. But even more frightening? About 90 million more over the age of 20 are pre-diabetic.

This is a major health crisis. Having diabetes isn’t just an inconvenience. It puts you at risk for heart problems, blindness, kidney disease, and amputations.1 The myth pushed by doctors is that the disease is more manageable than it used to be.
